Fantastic experience. We celebrated the birthday of our 10 year old daughter. Everything was perfect- the greeting, atmosphere, service, the food, tea and of course the wonderful desserts! Thumbs up from all ages between 10-66!??

Teatime treats are served alongside a selection of award-winning loose leaf teas and infusions, each of which has been chosen to complement the delicate flavours from the kitchen.

    We had an amazing time, from the attentiveness of the waiter, who explained everything to us, to the great tea and as for the food itself - delicious. Every thing was a delight to look at and fantastically scrumptious. We were absolutely delighted.

    Great service during the tea but a new waitress came by the table to pick up our payment and she just kept talking about her travel to Sweden back in 2008. That made us leave with a slightly annoyed feeling.
    China was beautiful and the recommendation of tea was spot on from our waiter.
    The egg should have been with a dark chocolate shell instead of milk chocolate. The lollipop was a bit dry and the chocolate milk, even though it was served in the cutest bottle, was a bit boring. The cotton candy was amazing and lovely zingy.

    All in all a wonderful experience.

    We booked the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea which was superb. Food was delicious and the staff were extremely attentive and helpful.

    Fantastic afternoon tea experience. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Some background music would have helped with ambience.
    We were going to have the champagne not the cocktail but the waitress talked us in to having the cocktail- sooo glad she did it was delicious.

    Delightful afternoon tea, bravo to the Chef's who meticulously handcrafted each and every element. The front of house service started well but was almost non-existant towards the end of our dining experience. We also had no option to remove the "optional" service charge!
